End of a Perfect Day

End of a Perfect Day is the title given to this delightful study of two little girls returning to the beach after exploring the shallows of the sea. In the background, looking into the late afternoon sunlight, are some simply rendered architectural features of a pier indicating the locality of the scene, Brighton.

This is one of my favourite paintings by Sherree Valentine Daines who is one of the UK’s leading figurative artists. I love the fresh, lively brush marks which capture, not only the movement of the sea and the sunlight dancing on its surface but the translucency of the girls dresses and highlights in their hair.

One of only 195 hand embellished  canvas prints, signed and numbered, which is available framed from the Alan Reed Studio & Gallery in Ponteland or online at alanreed.com
